SoMS Honours

SoMS Honours

Application Process » Step 1

The SoMS honours program welcomes applications from students across a diverse range of backgrounds. Typically, we receive applications from Science students (e.g. UNSW programs in Science - 3970, Advanced Science - 3962, Medical Science - 3991, etc.) who have completed Level III Majors in biomedical science disciplines. However, students from other disciplines who are interested in biomedical research are welcome, and should discuss their honours year with a potential supervisor and/or the Honours Convenor. 

The minimum eligibility requirements for Honours at SoMS are:
 
Prior study requirement 
3 year full-time Bachelor degree specialising in Anatomy, Pathology, Physiology, Pharmacology or other relevant science specialisation 
 
WAM requirement
Minimum credit (65) weighted average mark (WAM) for overall degree or a minimum credit (65) WAM for stage three (final year) relevant science subjects* 
 
Project/supervisor allocation
The student is responsible for arranging a supervisor and project before applying for Honours. Prospective students are advised to consult the SoMS Honours website for the list of supervisors and their Honours research projects.
 
*An applicant with an overall WAM of between 60 to 64 will only be considered if the weighted average for their relevant stage three (final year) courses is ≥65%.
